Dear Maintainer,

>From their tracker at

"When switching off SHOW_NAMESPACES, I can no longer build a PDF from the latex 
output. It fails with

! LaTeX Error: File `namespaces.tex' not found.

Here's a testcase:

    Build the testcase
    Run make.bat from the Doc\latex subdirectory

expected: should run fine and produce refman.pdf
actual: Error about missing namespaces.tex file"

The patch for the issue applies cleanly to the current debian source and
fixes the problem, reproduced below:

Subject: [PATCH] issue #6727 SHOW_NAMESPACES = NO breaks latex PDF

Only write the namespace index file reference (i.e. namespaces.tex , 
namespaces.rtf) to the overall file (i.e. refman.tex. refman.rtf) in case 
SHOW_NAMESPACES is set and there are namespaces.

Would it make sense to carry this in the debian patches until the next
upstream release?
